I used to think that decaf was as pointless as non-alcoholic beer. Or as useless as a padded bra… its like false advertisement (I will save the rest of that discussion for another post coming soon). I mean what is the point?! Well let me tell you, you know you love coffee when you are willing to drink it without the caffeination supply! I take Effexor for my anxiety issues, and it has a tiny bit of an upper for focus… when I first started taking it, as my body adjusted, taking it and having my coffee sent me in to the shakes zone. You know the one… jitter city! I decided immediately, craziness was just going to be life, because I WAS NOT giving up coffee.
I have before, given it up, simply to prove I was in control of my addiction. I quit for a whole month, through the headaches and overcoming my desire for it… gave it up! Not one sip. Agony. Once I knew I was could go with out, however, I immediately went back to drinking it, much to my dental hygienist’s chagrin, because I LIKE IT, (and I need it). So sorry mental health issue, “Doc we need to figure something else out”.
He actually thought it was a decent alternative to suggest decaf!
Are you kidding me right now?! Do you know me, at all?! What in the actual shit are you suggesting!?!
Since he has a degree and all, I reluctantly tried it. And that is when I knew, coffee is LOVE. I don’t just like it, I love it. Enough that I was willing (for the transitional period) to have decaf a few days a week (super glad that is over). I mean the last thing this crazy gal needs is something else to worry about! #gimmeallthecaffeines
Brown water in the am, brown water in the pm… brown water lover gal!
Sip, sip, cheers!
